Creating paintings to engage youth in reading is Arthur Haywood’s passion. His paintings are published in his book The Great Library and Space and Time Magazine. He has completed murals for Mural Arts and Elkins Park School. He received a Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship at Fondation Des États-Unis in Paris, where he is currently working on murals for Lycée Paul Lapie, from October 2020 until June 2021. The murals depict diverse students looking into scenes from fantasy books to inspire them to read. The paintings will be displayed at the school in May and at Fondation Des États-Unis in June.
